Posted on 04/16/2016 11:55:32 AM PDT by E. Pluribus Unum
Three Syrian refugee families flew to the Vatican with Pope Francis on Saturday following the pontiff's brief but provocative visit to a Greek island at the center of the European migrant crisis.
"The Pope has desired to make a gesture of welcome regarding refugees, accompanying on his plane to Rome three families of refugees from Syria, 12 people in all, including six children," the Vatican said in a statement after the pope's plane took off from Lesbos, Greece.
His trip to Lesbos was aimed at thanking the Greek people for welcoming refugees and to meet with migrants as the European Union implements a controversial plan to deport them back to Turkey.

The irony would be delicious if one of them beheaded him.
And installed them in his apartment, right?
Vetted Refugees or off the street refugees?
You don’t believe he’s actually going to let them get near him, do you?
The media would cover that up.
He has shown no support to the Catholics in the United States persecuted by the Obama administration.
I never in my life dreamed that the Little Sisters of the Poor would face imprisonment in the United States simply for trying to live up to their vows.
Pope Francis is an evil, dishonest man.
I think that he could probably house hundreds of them in the Vatican. Talking about 12 is just a joke considering he wants the rest of us to let in swarms of them.
And now, thanks to the LGBT crowd, the 30 year olds who say they are 15 are free to swing it around in the girls’ restrooms and locker rooms.
No, but I can always wish, especially if the one that got near him had a chef’s knife.
He is trying to show his moral superiority over us. He is saying “I brought back a dozen, you should bring in a million “
But he has unlimited funds, and bodyguards. They won’t be raping his daughters and chopping heads in the Vatican.
We are being taxed to house, feed and amuse them. We pay for their prayer rugs, veils and machetes. We have no defense against their savage barnyard passions. We have no bodyguards to keep them from burning us or killing us.
Sorry, pope-a-dope, we don’t need you to preach to us.
What a do-nothing blowhard.
He can stash them in a Vatican bathroom.
He should have taken 40-50 military age men. The could make a little no-go zone right there in St. Peter’s Square. Nuns beware.
They’ll wind up here in the end.
Then I say, it's high time we start taxing the Church.
How long will these people be guests of the Vatican before they are dropped off somewhere else? And, are they Muslims? Couldn’t the Pope find any surviving Christian Syrians?
I wonder how much vetting was done on them before they were taken into custody. Oh yeah they are free to go whenever they want.
A Pope who applauds and abets the Final Solution of the Western Civilization problem.
The Little Sisters aren’t being persecuted for trying to live their vows. They are being persecuted for being Catholics.
And how will destroying the Church be of any help?
What makes you think it would destroy the Church?
